Welcome to my blog! My name is Sissi and I live in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. I am a very eclectic cook, with a distinct penchant for the Japanese cuisine. I love filling up my pantry with pickles, sauces, savoury jellies, liquors…. I have a big passion for wine and am particularly fond of Burgundy wines and German dry rieslings. I am also a big fan of shochu (焼酎), my big discovery of recent years. Like most home cooks, I have always tried to keep my recipes on paper. Putting them online is a great way to share my culinary passion with you. I hope it will push me to become more disciplined and organized, improve my cooking skills, my English, not to mention learning to properly use my camera! It’s a pleasure to read your comments, but you can also write to me at withaglass at withaglass dot com.
